It has been almost a year since designer Alexander McQueen took his own life and in my opinion it's still one of the greatest losses in fashion world. His assistant and right hand Sarah Burton had the serious task to take over from her friend and mentor, but she managed to move the label on without losing McQueen's spirit. In February issue of Vogue UK she says: 'There will always be those McQueen elements, but at the same time, you can never stay still and you have to stay true to yourself. That's what Lee drummed in to me: you have to be able to stand behind your work!'
